A Valuable Investment

Art is a cultural marker; it is social status; it is an embodiment of history; it is a study in aesthetics; it is propaganda; and it is also a valuable investment. Owning an artwork not only gives the buyer the opportunity to partake in living history, it also promises a solid financial return.

 

The last 5 years has seen a gradual, successive increase in Japanese art investment. With the emerging, lucrative Japanese art market on the rise, Macey & Sons have curated an eclectic collection of post-war Japanese art in diversifying your collection portfolio.

 

Some of our featured artists are Toshimitsu Imai, Shozo Shimamoto and Yuko Nasaka. Profound Japanese artists who explored arts through a radical time of change in Japan after WWII. Don't miss these artist's works in the UnionPay Hospitality Lounge (Room 4315) and Room 4226 at the Asia Contemporary Art Show.

 

STANDOUT ARTISTS

Catch A Big Fish

Park Sung Ok

South Korea


Park Sung Ok (b.1981) searches for her true identity through her art. The girls depicted in her work are the projection of the artist’s identities and alter egos. The artist seeks to understand and visualize her true self questioning whether it is a modified alter ego or an unvarnished ego.


The process of creating work is considered as contemplation by the artist. “My art is time-consuming work. For me, repeatedly layering 2-3 mm pencil strokes to form side and figure is meditative exercise,” says Park. She begins with outlining the girl’s face, puts her in a position, and juxtaposes objects to complete another version of the self. The subtle shades and dreamlike quality resonate with the viewers.

Joshua Smith

Australia


Joshua Smith is a miniaturist and former stencil artist. With a career spanning 17 years, he has showcased his work globally in over 100 exhibitions. His work blew up internationally with his infamous ‘Temple Street’ Model, with continuous coverage from the media.


His composition fuses his love for Hong Kong Kung Fu movies as a child, replicating the beauty and decay within Hong Kong’s last few old buildings. In parallel, his recognition and replication of prolific graffiti artists work in his models is exacting. His sculpture ‘Dai Sum Dried Seafood’ is modeled from an old building on Des Veoux Road West that is currently being torn down, therefore posing the opportunity to own a small piece of Hong Kong history.

Nobuyoshi Araki

Japan


Nobuyoshi Araki (Tokyo, 1940) is one of the most recognized photographers in Japan who has focused his work on the themes of Eros, Thanatos as well as the impermanence in life since the 1960s. Exemplified by up-close, personal snapshots of naked women gazing emptily into the camera, Araki photographed the extremes of reality and fiction, Eros (life/ sex) and Thanatos (death), capturing the opposing elements of the two.


Shortly after he began his career as a commercial photographer, he began organizing solo exhibitions and publishing photography books. In 1971, Araki self-published “Sentimental Journey”, a visual narrative of the honeymoon with his wife Yoko. His works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

MASTER OF MYANMAR: AUNG MYINT

Regarded as one of the pioneers of performance and experimental art in Myanmar, Aung Mint, a self-taught artist, is known for his mother and child inspired drawings, drawn with a single unbroken link of black acrylic that turn into gestural forms loosely reminiscent of the Pietà. Aung Mint works with painting and installation and loves to experiment with different mediums to explore the themes of cultural identity and personal memories. His works are widely collected by institutions including the Guggenheim Museum and frequently appear at auction.

 

Aung Myint has kindly donated the works appearing at the Asia Contemporary Art Show to Connecting Myanmar, a Hong Kong charity that aims to inspire young people to think critically with an empathetic lens through connecting Myanmar and Hong Kong youth. Connecting Myanmar funds students to improve their community upon their graduation. All proceeds from the sale of Aung Myint's works at the Show will go towards scholarships for students from Myanmar in their pursuit of an overseas university education.
